John Fremont Signature with Rank, PSA/DNA Encapsulated and Graded NM 7

Fantastic bold John Fremont signature "J.C. Fremont / Maj Genl Commg", on sheet, 4" x 2.25". PSA/DNA encapsulated and graded NM 7. Affixed to another sheet, and with mounting remnants verso, else near fine.

The career of John Charles Fremont, who became known as “The Great Pathfinder,” proved to be far greater before the Civil War than during the conflict. Before the war, Fremont made a name for himself leading several expeditions into the west in order to explore the regions and survey them for further expansion. In July of 1838, he was appointed a second lieutenant in Corps of Topographical Engineers, and led four major expeditions into the west to survey and explore the regions. During the Mexican-American War, Fremont led the California Battalion to capture the cities of Santa Barbara, Presidio, and part of Los Angeles. He also signed the Treaty of Cahuenga, which ended the war in most of California. After the war, Fremont received the military governorship of California, but when he refused to give up the seat, was court-martialed and resigned from the military on March 15, 1848. Fremont served as a senator from California from 1850 to 1851, and ran unsuccessfully for president of the United States as the first Republican Party candidate in 1856.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
